9780060525699: Bob Dylan: Behind the Shades Revisited

In 1991 Clinton Heylin published what was considered the most definitive biography of Bob Dylan available. In 2001 he completely revised and reworked this hugely acclaimed book, adding new sections, substantially reworking text, and bringing the story up-to-date with Dylan's explosive career in 2000.

Bob Dylan: Behind the Shades Revisited follows the story of Dylan from his humble beginnings in Minnesota to his arrival in New York in 1961, his subsequent rise in the folk pantheon of Greenwich Village in the early '60s, and his cataclysmic folk-rock metamorphosis at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965. In the succeeding eighteen months, Dylan released Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde, and embarked on the legendary 1966 World Tour that culminated with an unforgettable concert at the Royal Albert Hall. Heylin details it all, along with the true story of Dylan's motorcycle accident, his remarkable reemergence in the mid-'70s, the only exacting account of his controversial conversion to born-again Christianity, the Neverending Tour, and yet another incredible Dylan resurgence with his 1997 Grammy Album of the Year Award-winning Time Out of Mind.

Deemed by The New Yorker as "the most readable and reliable" of all Dylan biographies, this book will give fans what they have always wanted -- a chance to get to know the man behind the shades.

Product Description:

Bob Dylan - poet, singer, songwriter and rock icon - is regarded as one of the most influential figures in modern culture and music. Seeking to retain the sense of Dylan as a man as well as a myth, this biography, written by a co-founder of the British "Wanted Man" magazine, relies heavily on Dylan's own words and those of his closest associates to place in perspective all periods of Dylan's life and work. Equal weight is given to each of three decades of Dylan's performing career: the early days as a radical folk singer up to the time he "went electric" in 1965; the mature period of world fame, covering his motorcycle accident, Woodstock, and the production of albums ranging from the widely-panned "Self Portrait" to those regarded as being amongst his best (eg "Blonde on Blonde", "Blood on the Tracks"); and the difficult 1980s which saw his conversion to "Born Again" Christianity and attempts to resurrect his career.
